Multiple Conservatives QUIT Fox News Over Tucker Carlson's Propaganda
Tucker Carlson has come out with a documentary called Patriot Purge, which is about what “actually” happened on January 6th. The goal of the piece is to provide a whitewashed account of the Trump riots and to deflect blame onto left-wing actors and exonerate the former president and his allies for the attacks that day. This propaganda piece has led to the resignation of two longtime Fox News contributors, Jonah Goldberg and Stephen Hayes. In response to the documentary, Goldberg and Hayes said that “Fox News still does real reporting, and there are still responsible conservatives providing valuable opinion and analysis. But the voices of the responsible are being drowned out by the irresponsible.” It’s good to see that Goldberg and Hayes are drawing the line somewhere, but the truth is that they could have resigned in protest over other misinformation that Fox News has spread throughout the years, including the perpetuation of the Trump voter fraud narrative that led to the January 6th attacks in the first place.
WOW: Pro-Trump Attorneys Ordered to Pay $180,000 Over Bogus Fraud Case
Two Trump attorneys, Gary Fielder and Ernest John Walker, have been ordered to pay for the legal costs of entities they sued in frivolous lawsuits having to do with imaginary voter fraud in the 2020 election. The pair must pay $50,000 to Facebook, $63,000 to Dominion Voting Systems, $63,000 to the Center for Tech and Civic life as well as $6,000 to the commonwealth of Pennsylvania and $5,000 to the state of Michigan. That makes up a total of around $180,000. The Magistrate Judge ruling in the case, N. Reid Neureiter, said about the court’s decision, “I believe that rather than a legitimate use of the legal system to seek redress for redressable grievances, this lawsuit has been used to manipulate gullible members of the public and foment public unrest. To that extent, this lawsuit has been an abuse of the legal system and an interference with the machinery of government. For all these reasons, I feel that a significant sanctions award is merited." This is absolutely the right decision and should serve as a lesson to all those who wish to waste judicial resources on bogus pro-Trump causes and complaints.

YEP: Beto O'Rourke is Running for Texas Governor
Beto O’Rourke announced that he will be running for Governor of Texas against Republican incumbent Greg Abbott. O’Rourke is a former US congressman who was propelled into the national scene when he challenged Senator Ted Cruz in 2018 and then ran for president in the crowded 2020 Democratic primary. Abbott is beatable with his popularity sinking in part due to his disastrous approach dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. Abbott’s approval rating is now in the low 40s and even some Republican candidates are challenging him in the gubernatorial primary like Allen West, former chairman of the Texas GOP. There’s also a possibility of actor Matthew McConaughey getting into the mix and running as an independent. A liability for Beto will be that he’s on record as saying he will “take away” guns if elected to higher office, which could be a tough sell for voters in the Lone Star State. The bottom line is there’s a long way to go in this campaign and it remains uncertain whether O’Rourke will prove to be the right candidate to run against Greg Abbott.

Trump FURIOUS That Ron DeSantis is Getting More Popular
Donald Trump is growing jealous of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. Trump accurately assesses that DeSantis could be a threat to him if they both decide to run for president in 2024. A CPAC straw poll from a few months back put the Florida governor as the second most-liked choice for the Republican nomination. Trump led the pack with 70%, but DeSantis got a respectable 21%, and no other potential candidates got any traction. According to Republican insiders, the tension has risen between the two over the past few months. Trump has reportedly pushed DeSantis into publicly announcing that he will not run for president in 2024. The ex-POTUS frequently reminds Ron that he endorsed him for governor back in 2018 and claims to be the reason why he won. It would be great for the Democratic Party if these two Republican leaders are at each other’s throats between now and the 2024 election cycle. But it’s certainly possible that DeSantis will delay his presidential ambitions until Trump is no longer in the picture in 2028.
